How to get an abortion in the US
Posted On June 21, 2021
Abortion clinics have long been the subject of the national debate about women’s health.
Now, with the country’s newest abortion law in place, women have the opportunity to get one of the safest methods on the market.

If they have a pre-existing condition, women will have to pay an annual fee of $500, while a fee of up to $1000 will be charged for any procedure after 20 weeks gestation.
Women can get an ultrasound to determine the gestational age, as well as get an HPV test and a blood test before getting an abortion.
The state also requires the use of ultrasound monitors during the procedure, as they can detect abnormalities in the fetus.
“The ultrasound is very important,” Dr. Melissa Wahl, a gynecologist at the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Austin, told the AP.
“It’s not about whether or not you have a problem.
It’s about whether the fetus has a problem.”
However, while women can get a quick ultrasound to make sure they have the correct gestational ages, Dr. Wahl also warned against getting a false diagnosis.
“In general, a good ultrasound doesn’t show any of these abnormalities,” she said.
“If you have an abnormal pregnancy test result, it’s not clear if the fetus is going to be viable.
It is very hard to say whether or a fetus is viable.”
In the US, there are about 11 million abortions per year, according to the Guttmacher Institute.
According to a 2016 study, the abortion rate in the United States increased slightly from 2014 to 2016.
According to the AP, the number of abortions in the U.S. was 8.7 million in 2016, up from 7.9 million in 2014.
